5 in 1 Natural Beauty Purse

I proudly wear my crown today as queen of the combos. This creation meets 5 of the 6 challenges for this week all in 1, just could not make the sketch fit in,lol. #1. Today's INSPIRATION-Birch,Bark & Birds, #2. Friday's LIMITED SUPPLY-Round & Round, #3. Thursday's WAYS TO USE IT - Fashion, 4. Tuesday's COLOR, and #5. Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS - Ink, Spray & Smash. YEH! Hands are clapping everywhere. Sorry, I get a little carried away.I cut an almost complete circle leaving the folded edge at the top using vanilla cs. Smaller circle cut w/kraft then stamped w/Aida Cloth using Tempting turquoise. Stamped the word block and butterfly on some paper created Tuesday for Faith's ISS tech and the colors tempt turquoise & green galore using Timber Brown Stazon then cut them out. I cut an opening in the word block and sponged the white edges with turquoise. STamped the bird on vanilla using stazon then colored with brown color pencil and blended w/gamsol. stuck the bird through the back side of the word block and matted on tempt turquoise. (Got this idea from the 1st SU Catty I saw). The butterfly and the button are both popped up on diminsionals. The handle is 3 strips of neutral colored hemp braided and secured to the inside. Single strand of hemp used as a faux purse closure. Hope you like it! I had so much fun making it especially since I did not get to stamp for the last 2 days.
